Carson/Douglas Mini-Network Co-Chair
Affiliation: Carson City School District/Carson High School
I have worked in many areas of the OST field throughout my career. As a special education teacher, I worked in afterschool tutoring and interventions. I then worked with the Mentor Center of Western Nevada supporting youth through community mentoring, and worked next as the Director of Teen Services for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Nevada. presently, I am the Carson High School 21st Century Site Coordinator working with teens in afterschool tutoring, enrichment and support opportunities throughout the year.
What do you feel is the most important quality you bring to the Nevada Afterschool Network and the field of out-of-school-time programming?
OST programming for teens is often challenging and requires great creativity and flexibility. My passion for engaging teens in afterschool opportunities is driven by my desire to see every teen succeed.
